Too much question marks... You can't see any correlation possible ? If you are not authorized to come overseas as a teenager, maybe you will never do it, even as professional player.

Let's take a fictional scenario:
We're in 2014 and this new "Don Cherry law" is voted. Teenage hockey players are not authorized anymore to come overseas. You're a talent that expected to play CHL because the NHL is the league you want to play for. And Canada seems like a lovable place to live too. Staying in North America after retirement still sounds like a good plan !

You're now 22, screw Canada and the NHL after all, KHL and motherland are fine enough today, in 2018. Family, friends and fans love you and this Natasha girl is so hot !

A few years after retiring you finally acknowledge to yourself that maybe you weren't such a great hockey player, not good enough to make the HOF at least. But you don't care about this anymore. You don't care because you gave your son the same love for the game, and your kid IS that next generational talent. But sorry Don, he's born in City of Magnitogorsk, Chelyabinsk Oblast. Russia.
